The Neverending Story is based on the first half of the fantasy novel of the same name by Michael Ende. While I plan on reading the novel, I have yet to do so; therefore I can’t compare the two. However, nearly 30 years later, the movie is still as visually stunning as I remember. Watching Atreyu traverse Fantasia in search of a way to save the Empress, was as spellbinding as I remembered. And the wonderfully majestic score, composed by Klaus Doldinger, brought back great memories, as well as the title song, which was composed by legendary disco producer Giorgio Moroder.
If you’ve never seen this movie, I highly recommend it. While some of the special effects look dated, the majority of them are still wonderful. More importantly, the acting is excellent and the story is charming. It’s a wonderful film for those young and old, and it still ranks high on my list of all-time favorite films.
Still love this movie, apparently they are remaking it, news which I am not sure if I am excited or disturbed by!
Thanks for liking and commenting on my post.
I was unaware of a remake being in the works. Considering the original still holds up, a remake seems unnecessary to me. But if Hollywood can make a buck…
